I'm afraid you may need to consider the fact that your EDTV may have failed in service (broken).

This tv problems are those long board call the LCD inverter boards,it is dead.TV should have 1 or 2 long boards that call the LCD inverter boards it it dead,these 1 or 2 long LCD inverter boards only job are to provide a backlight to the tv LCD screen panel to have screen light produce a picture.Tries websites like Shojimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy those refurbihes 1 or 2 long LCD inverter boards for the replacment.

Hi-\r\n Thank you for being here- We were watching our Sharp Flat Screened TV, beautiful nice picture. We noticed when we hooked the cable up for Direct TV in our new home, the input connection point was...


With Direct TV, you should use the video input (composite video- yellow/picture, red/right stereo, white/left stereo)
OR
component video- (green/video, blue/video,red/video white/left channel stereo, red/right channel stereo)

the antenna connector should never be used anymore unless connecting an outdoor antenna or VCR.

if one of your input connectors is damaged, it is not likely that is will be repaired without replacing the entire circuit board (expensive!!!).
just use a different "input"- there are usually at least 3 on most TV's

Dynex TV picture disappears to snow after a second


I bought this TV and had the exact same problem, I tried everything i could think of and so did Geek Squad but nothing worked. We called Best Buy to see about a return policy and the manager told us that the brands Dynex and Insignia do not work with certain cable companies, one being Comcast. Call Best Buy and ask if your cable company will work with the brand. My suggestions are to either return the TV and search for a new one, I did this, OR you could take a DVD/VCR player and connect the cable from your wall to the DVD/VCR player. Then use the red, yellow, and white wires to connect the TV to the DVD/VCR player. Put your TV on the proper input and cable will work fine, because you will see the picture from the player not directly from your TV. I hope this helps, if you need any further information just ask.

Occasionally no picture with 42' Panasonic Plasma


It sounds like the cable modem is flaky. Have you called the local cable company to report the problem. This should be a no-cost solution.

My picture has a green and blue hue to it.


After spending a day trying to fix the TV, I found out the problem was actually with my cable box. I have an HD DVR recorder. We unplugged the cable box and plugged the TV directly into the cable in the wall and it worked. So we took the cable box back to our cable company and got a new cable box. (Can't live without the DVR!!)
